We think this goes without saying, but our event is a QUEER/INTERSECTIONAL-FEMINIST/TRANS space which is HET/CIS **FRIENDLY**. Take your transphobic/misogynist/free-speacher/racist/otherwise bigoted beliefs elsewhere and shove it!
Our security and service staff is aware of our community's needs and discomforts so if anything happens to you which makes you uneasy, mention it to ANYONE on the staff or in our cast and the person in question will be removed without hesitation.
We have 20+ seats arranged which can be reserved ahead of time for guests who require seating.
We are unfortunately aware of the accessibility restrictions that exist at the Copper Owl. There is a large set of carpeted stairs upon entry of the venue, but we have staff available to assist in any way they can for you to join us.
